The PS3 and PS4 gamers are having one question in their mind can you play PS3 games on PS4. The answer to this question is that it is a complicated process. You won’t be able to play the PS3 games on PS4 using a disc or by downloading them from the PlayStation Network.
You can play PS3 games on PS4 using a Sony service known as PlayStation Now. Technographx will show you in detail how this can be done in this article.
PlayStation Now is a game-streaming service. It allows you to play PS3 games on PS4 over a Wi-Fi connection. PlayStation Now is basically the Netflix of gaming where you will be able to play any title within the PlayStation Now library as long as you have fairly speedy Wi-Fi.
The advantage of this is that you won’t have to wait for the PS3 titles to install or update. All the titles are stored in the online cloud which means that all the boring stuff happens in the background. You need to just download the PlayStation Now app from the PlayStation Network Store.
Also, you will require a 5Mbps internet connection or faster for this to function well. Now, talking about the price of PlayStation Now, it has two different pay models. There is a fairly steep monthly fee of £12.99 per month or you can rent games for a one-off fee.
The two-day rental will cost you £2.99 or £4.99 depending on the title. There is a 30-day rental period available at £5.99 or £7.99 per game. If you decide to go for the monthly membership then all your saved data is stored and you can pick up exactly where you left off. There is also a month’s free trial available to try before you want to commit totally in paying the fees.
Keep one thing in mind that the PS3 games that you already own will continue to gather dust in the corner for a while and also not all games are supported by this platform.
